Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

Representative Text

I. To Day, the Lord in Triumph reigns,
Breaks Death and Hell's infernal Chains;
Retakes his Life, and Majesty;
Praise him to all Eternity. Hallelujah.

II. When he descended into Hell,
Satan and all his Legions fell:
Behold the great Accuser cast:
The Hour of Darkness now is past. Hallelujah.

III. Now let the infernal Lions roar,
They cannot hurt us as before;
Lost is the Pow'r of all those Fiends:
We are God's Children, Heirs, and Friends. Hallelujah.

IV. O sweet Redeemer, Jesus Christ!
Our Sacrifice, and great High-Priest,
Lead us by thine Almighty Grace,
To end with Joy our Christian Race. Hallelujah.

V. Infinite Love, gracious Lord!
Thy wond'rous Name shall be ador'd;
To Thee be endless Honours giv'n
By all on Earth, and all in Heav'n. Hallelujah.
